My husband,children,grandchildren,and friends love when I make my homemade soup.I get asked alot from them to make it.It is a real tummy warming comforting dish.I love to make it especially on a cold winters day.All you need is a hot bowl of my soup and a cold glass of milk.Oh yeah you can add a few crackers to if you desire.

    I hope you enjoy this soup. It is really good with some homemade cornbread and a tall glass of milk. I have also submitted my recipe for the cornbread.
